1 run off a high full toss which gets called a no ball, its so high that even Watson can barely get to it

What happened there? Andre Russell ran in, then halted behind the umpire. Watson nearly pulled out of the shot and then Russell bowled. Watson is protesting with the umpire.

Now Watson gets a thick outside edge which lands in front of third man for a couple

11 runs off the over, Rajasthan 150/3 after 18 overs

They will be looking to score at least 30 off the last 2 overs

Vinay Kumar will bowl the last over...this could be a treat for Rajasthan

Four runs off the first two balls

OUT! Steve Smith is out, he tries to go over the on side and fins mid wicket

OUT! What a catch on the bounday. That was almost like Chris Lynn's catch all over again, now Binny tries to go big and is caught superbly on the long on boundary

Vinay Kumar has been seriously lucky

1 run

SIX! Six to end the innings, the batsman swings Vinay hard over square leg, there was not a single yorker in that over and Kumar was going to pray the price at some point

KKR 114/0 after 13 overs

KKR 121/0 after 14 overs

OUT! Gambhir is out, he got a thick outside edge to the keeper

Chaos...Andre Russell is the new batsman. Watson yorks him, he manages to keep it out, then turns around and tries to stop the ball from going onto the stumps.

Swing and a miss, KKR get just 6 off that over. 132/6 after 17 overs

38 needed off 17 balls...KKR need a few big hits now.

Southee around the wicket now, slower ball but its outside leg and called wide

Down the track comes SA Yadav, he swings and misses

Now he goes for a sweep and misses, there was an appeal for LBW but turned down
